Buzz (Bud Abbott) and Abercrombie (Lou Costello) work in a Tinseltown haircut salon where they usually just take a little off the side. But why not take 10% off the top instead? So the fellas become movie talent agents, se... more »tting in motion the lights-camera-comedy antics of Abbott and Costello in Hollywood, including Costello being mistaken for a prop dummy during the filming of a saloon brawl, Bud and Lou coping with insomnia, and a pursuit finale in the cars and on the tracks of a roaring roller-coaster. You'll also find Lost in a Harem. Locked in is more like it, as the two land in the hoosegow twice, where their timing, repartee and monkeyshines shine. Douglas Dumbrille plays the evil potentate who uses hypnosis against the boys ? making this a tale of Arabian daze and nights. The grand wazir orders you to watch!« less
"In my opinion this DVD release is a total slap in the face to Abbott & Costello fans. Warner home video should be ashamed of themselves with this release, the video transfer quality is absolutely terrible. After watching this double feature, it's evident that no amount of restoration went into this DVD release from Warner. While Abbott and Costello fans will find the movies funny, they won't be laughing over the video quality.

What Happened To The Transfers?!

"Although it's a great idea to feature both of these films as a 2-fer DVD, each one suffers from bad transfers. The worse of the two being "In Hollywood". There is a strange blue/gray blemmish at the top of the film that lasts throught the entire movie. While the films are not the best made by Abbott & Costello- thanks to MGM who never knew how to make comedies, they are still fun to watch and are a must for completist geeks like myself."
A&C are in top form in this hilarious MGM outing.

"Although, not usually mentioned as one of their funniest, this picture cracks me up every time. The routine where Lou is trying to get to sleep is priceless. As in most of their early films, the boy/girl subplot is a bore, and there are a couple of sappy songs, but the laughs are generous."
